MSC has been awarded the Maritime Sustainability Passport certificate and seal by the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA), recognising the company’s responsible business operations and approach to sustainability.
The certificate is awarded to companies, organisations and individuals who meet the requirements of NAMEPA’s CSR/ESG Maritime Sustainability Program which encompasses each of NAMEPA’s six transparency pillars in its Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental, Social and Governance metrics.
Stefania Lallai, Vice President Sustainability, MSC stated: “We are proud to have received this important recognition from NAMEPA. As a global company led by strong values, MSC has a longstanding commitment to sustainability. For us at MSC, operating responsibly and supporting sustainable global trade is key. Through our business operations, we link global supply chains and facilitate access to markets. We continue investing in innovative, scalable solutions focused on creating positive impact on people, communities and environment.”
The goal of NAMEPA’s CSR/ESG programme is to evaluate an entity’s corporate governance, the environment and the human element activities. It provides resources to the maritime industry as a whole and to specific companies and individuals who strive to engage in industry best practices and play a role in creating a sustainable global environment, society and economy. Its six transparency pillars are used as a basis for assessing the sustainable practices.
“By qualifying for NAMEPA’s Maritime Sustainability Passport, MSC has demonstrated its commitment to stewardship of the environment, care for its employees, and responsible corporate governance,” stated NAMEPA’s Co-Founder/Executive Director Carleen Lyden Walker. “It comes as no surprise that MSC has qualified for our certification, as they consistently project best practices in their operations and areas of engagement. We offer them our sincerest congratulations.”
